Bond 23 is Officially 'Skyfall'

Today saw the London press conference for the latest James Bond feature and now all suspicions can be laid to rest - the film is officially named 'Skyfall' and shooting begins this afternoon.

 Filming locations include Pinewood Studios in London, China, Turkey and Scotland. Academy Award winning director Sam Mendes ('American Beauty', 'Road to Perdition') it's at the helm and the cast alongside Daniel Craig's Bond include Dame Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, Naomi Harris and Berenice Marlohe.

 After MGM (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer) filed for bankruptcy last year, things seem to be looking up for the studio and swift movement is now elevating the latest Bond film in the franchise. 

 Interestingly, today is the 50th anniversary of Sean Connery's announcement as James Bond for the franchise's first picture, 'Dr. No' back in 1962. Next year will see the series' full 50th birthday however. 

 Here at Haydon's Movie House, we will keep you updated on all things Bond and 'Skyfall' as the film progresses. Let's just hope it features a scene like this...
